Fashion Police: Too Tart Too Lemony

Hair styling guru Saba Ansari was spotted at the Launch of Essie Nail Polish in Karachi looking way too bright for our eyes. While yellow is en-vogue this summer, we are not sure if such an overdose of mustard can fit into the ‘fashionable’ category. Here is what she did wrong:

The charge sheet


We admit that Saba is the queen of hairstyling and make-up but this particular nest on her head is probably more suitable for a wedding. A simple side-parted bun or a French twist would have been a more appropriate choice for the event.


While we are fans of Sabs’ bridal and party make-up, we are not so sure about that tinge of pale yellow/gold eye shadow. Apart from that, the make-up is thankfully subtle and elegant and not as overboard as her outfit. Good job!


Printed trousers classify as one of the hottest trends this summer and while these bright yellow ZARA pants are super-chic, the matching top makes the entire outfit look like an eyesore. We previously saw actor Sophie Choudry sporting the exact same pair of trousers — featured in our This or That column — with a simple white tank top. We would have appreciated if Saba took some pointers before leaving her house.

Accessories and Shoes

It seems Saba was overly fascinated with egg-yolkish yellow and maybe that is why she made the biggest mistake of wearing plastic-like flower earrings in yellow colour as well. The Chanel chain belt is very voguish but does not complement the outfit well. The oversize maroon ring looks completely out of place and while we would like to give her points for toning it down with nude-coloured shoes and bag, the box-heeled sandals are not that appealing. A nice pair of flats or pumps would have done the trick.

Bail out!

Feeha Jamshed

Feeha keeps the funk alive with a pair of printed, flowy palazzos and nude crisp menswear-inspired shirt.

We love how she has used that big black belt to enhance her petite figure and added a bit of quirkiness with the mint nail colour.

Sanam Chaudhri

Designer Sanam Chaudhri pulls off this cool and casual look with ease.

The black and white striped print is a better way to try your hands at the new trend as they give a slimming effect.

The studded wedges and that neon-coloured funky necklace is scoring high on our style-o-meter.

Sania Maskatiya

The talented designer is known for her simple and casual sense of style. Sania looks uber-chic in snake-skin textured pants and a loose white top. She keeps it fresh with a trendy braid and camel-coloured chappals.
